To transform medical innovation, preclinical and clinical testing, regulatory approval, and treatment decision to make medical testing work so everyone, everywhere can be well, able, and active for life.
To lead the technological revolution where virtual humans become the standard for in silico testing by deploying supercomputer-based Virtual Human platforms to model patients to improve health.
Guillaume and Mariano started the Alya Project at the BSC, a recently created research center on supercomputing applications, hosting the fourth largest supercomputer on earth, MareNostrum I. One of the first application fields would be the cardiovascular system.

ELEM becomes a spin-off from BSC, who transfers the technology and gives an exclusive commercial exploitation licence. ELEM's goal is to create our Virtual Humans platform to put all its power directly in the hands of the healthcare stakeholders.

14 years later, 100 papers published, more than 400 million core hours of supercomputing power spent, and 5 million euros invested in development, Alya is the core technology of ELEM's Virtual Humans. BSC hosts the fourth upgrade of MareNostrum IV.
